Comprehensive overview of human rights and education

09.12.2011
German Education Server and “Education Worldwide“ present an up-to-date dossier

An up-to-date dossier of the German Education Server and its partner ”Education Worldwide” delivers manifold information on the human right to education as well as human rights issues in education: On December 10, 1948, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights was published.

Subject to a co-operation between the German Education Server and “Education Worldwide”, this dossier is offered in German and English. The German Education Server is the central gateway to education information on the Internet. This joint service of the federal government and the Länder states is coordinated at the German Institute for International Educational Research (DIPF).

“Education worldwide”, a gateway to educational information from abroad, is also managed by the DIPF; this service is part of the association of portals hosted by the German Education Server.

The dossier focuses on the human right to basic education, particularly in times of crisis, and renders international sources such as the brochure “UNESCO and education. Everyone has the right to education“ accessible.

Moreover, the dossier links to manifold information offerings in the field of integrating human rights into education and learning. For instance, this includes a teacher compendium by “Human Rights Education Associates“, a non-governmental organization that acts as a network in human rights education.

The DIPF is a member of the Leibniz Association, which currently counts 87 research institutes and science infrastructure institutions, as well as two associated members. Research in the Leibniz Association covers a broad scope, reaching from the natural sciences, engineering and environmental sciences to economics-, social and space science and the humanities. Leibniz institutes strategically and thematically work on issues that are relevant to society as a whole. Hence, Leibniz institutes are jointly funded by the federal government and the Länder states.

Im Focus: Making lightweight construction suitable for series production

More and more automobile companies are focusing on body parts made of carbon fiber reinforced plastics (CFRP). However, manufacturing and repair costs must be further reduced in order to make CFRP more economical in use. Together with the Volkswagen AG and five other partners in the project HolQueSt 3D, the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH) has developed laser processes for the automatic trimming, drilling and repair of three-dimensional components.

Automated manufacturing processes are the basis for ultimately establishing the series production of CFRP components. In the project HolQueSt 3D, the LZH has...

Im Focus: Wonder material? Novel nanotube structure strengthens thin films for flexible electronics

Reflecting the structure of composites found in nature and the ancient world, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have synthesized thin carbon nanotube (CNT) textiles that exhibit both high electrical conductivity and a level of toughness that is about fifty times higher than copper films, currently used in electronics.

"The structural robustness of thin metal films has significant importance for the reliable operation of smart skin and flexible electronics including...

Im Focus: Deep inside Galaxy M87

The nearby, giant radio galaxy M87 hosts a supermassive black hole (BH) and is well-known for its bright jet dominating the spectrum over ten orders of magnitude in frequency. Due to its proximity, jet prominence, and the large black hole mass, M87 is the best laboratory for investigating the formation, acceleration, and collimation of relativistic jets. A research team led by Silke Britzen from the Max Planck Institute for Radio Astronomy in Bonn, Germany, has found strong indication for turbulent processes connecting the accretion disk and the jet of that galaxy providing insights into the longstanding problem of the origin of astrophysical jets.

Supermassive black holes form some of the most enigmatic phenomena in astrophysics. Their enormous energy output is supposed to be generated by the...

Im Focus: A Quantum Low Pass for Photons

Physicists in Garching observe novel quantum effect that limits the number of emitted photons.

The probability to find a certain number of photons inside a laser pulse usually corresponds to a classical distribution of independent events, the so-called...

Im Focus: Microprocessors based on a layer of just three atoms

Microprocessors based on atomically thin materials hold the promise of the evolution of traditional processors as well as new applications in the field of flexible electronics. Now, a TU Wien research team led by Thomas Müller has made a breakthrough in this field as part of an ongoing research project.

Two-dimensional materials, or 2D materials for short, are extremely versatile, although – or often more precisely because – they are made up of just one or a...
